Still great fishing and not a lot of rain for this time of year! Come on down.06/13/2011
Reef fishing has been really good for yellowtails and mangrove snapper. While wreck fishing and mahi fishing continues to stay strong. Anyone interested in fishing the Keys is in for a great time and plenty of fish to pack and take home.
Fishing in the Florida Keys is Fabulous!!!05/31/2011
I've been saying the wreck fishing is hot all season and it still is. It's better than ever with the grouper back in season. We're catching fish with some nice size to them and having a blast. The warmer weather has the mahi fishing getting better too. And of course when we're mahi fishing there's always the shot at nice tuna, too!! Florida Keys fishing is hot, hot, hot! Come on down and find out for yourself.
Spring fishing is starting up in the Keys!03/30/2011
Hi everyone, Snapper fishing at night is full on. Yellowtails and mangrove snappers are all eating at night. Daytime fishing on the Eagle Eye has produced lots of yellowtails, mangrove and mutton snappers as well. Also, tarpon fishing is just getting started at the bridges. Tarpon are so much fun to fight. If you can, plan a tarpon trip while staying at Hawks Cay Resort on your spring break.
Want to go fishing? Give me a call.01/10/2011
The weather and the fishing in the Florida Keys is perfect right now. No snow, no rain, a light breeze, calm seas and the fish are here. Come on down, book a charter and experience the vacation of a lifetime.
Fishing again today!10/27/2010
We're out today on a 3/4 day trip. Weather is great. Temperatures in the upper 80's, gentle breeze. What more could we want? Except to catch fish. And we've been doing a lot of that. Had some great grouper catches the last few weeks. Nice 25lb blacks. So come on down and let's go fishing.
Weather is good again.10/08/2010
The tropical storm and cold front that collided offshore earlier this week have passed and the wind has laid down. We fished today and caught two nice grouper and a large mutton snapper and several yellowtail snapper. Had an eight year old and a twelve year old onboard, they had a great time. I love fishing kids, they have such a great time and so open to new adventures.
Lste summer fishing!!09/09/2010
We are beginning to make the transition to fall fishing. The mahi fishing is slowing down. So right now we are mostly reef and wreck fishing and starting to sailfish. Fall is the start to sailfishing. The fishing will only get better as the water begins to cool down. We can't wait!!
Still catching tarpon!06/04/2010
Fished three tarpon trips yesterday and every angler hooked-up. We were using mullet and pichards for bait. Had a great time on every trip. If you haven't had a chance to catch the silver king, you really are missing a thrill. I love it!!
Tarpon has been very good. We've been averaging 8-10 bites a trip. Average catch is 3 fish a trip. If you're a morning bird, early tides are the best, especially in late May and June.
Fishing is red hot!!04/01/2010
We're catching our limits on mangrove snapper and yellowtail. Having a great time and eating pretty well, too!
Capt. Jim Perry, Eagle Eye12/26/2009
Late fall fishing is second-to-none in the Florida Keys. The sailfishing is spectacular and the reef fishing - which includes yellowtail snapper, grouper, mangrove snapper and lots of kingfish - is very impressive. On my boat, 95% of our fishing is done with live bait such as ballyhoo, pilchards, shrimp and pin fish. Live bait really draws in the fish because it’s fresh and catches the eye with movement!
As a captain for many years, I always have my fair share of fresh fish available. I love to cook and have built up a ton of great seafood recipes over the years. When we hit the docks with your catch, I’ll give you a recipe that will work best with your catch, or we can take your catch to one of Hawks Cay Resort’s restaurants and have the chef prepare it for you. Nothing tastes better than fish you’ve caught yourself!
So come on down to the Keys and let’s go fishing!
